Operation Pegase

Heh heh, now that's a veteran German trick. They tried it often both during and after the Battle of Britain, where English-speaking Germans would get on the British radio channels and try to vector fighters in random directions. Some of the English-speakers were quite good, and when a British pilot suspected he was being misled, he'd say "...pronounce 'squirrel'!" Sometimes they just blanketed stuff with static, too - but that usually took a ground station, and they never knew all of the channel...

Operation Pegase

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" They might have to absorb the first blow, but Engel was confident that a riposte would be successful. Well, confidence is always good! Even so, Engel has only 60% of the airgroup that Vice-Admiral Bailly can employ. ;)

Operation Pegase

Amiraute Francaise, Outside Paris 13:00 Hours, September 25, 1948 Minister of National Defense Édouard Delcroix had missed his lunch appointment at the headquarters of the Marine Nationale. It had been unavoidable - after all, even government ministers had bosses who demanded their time. Delcroix thus arrived to his appointment both late and hungry. Admiral Gensoul, the naval Chief of Staff, had waited for him to arrive; they sat down for lunch. "How's the exercise progressing?" Delcroix asked, ...

Operation Pegase

OOC: Typical British over-reaction! ;) I think Force Y is bigger than both parts of the exercising fleets in their totality... For elements of disclosure, FO Bayard, the opfor in this exercise, is composed of the following units: Quoted 5th Division de Porte-avions: Zélé, Héros 5th Division de Croiseurs: Redoubtable, Renommée 13th Flotilla Torpillieurs: L'Inflexible, L'Inébranlable, L'Infatigable, L'Implacable British intelligence, at least, would know that these are the ships in play, since it'...

Operation Pegase

Good so far! :) Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Bramesfeld nodded. “Is FO Bayard still at Dakar?” Merten shook his head. “Bailly has taken the precaution of moving Bayard to Casablanca – a double-edged sword. Yes, it places him closer to the probable area of operations, but forces him to make an early decision on where to engage. If he passes to the east of Atlantis, he will not be able to intercept Engel until he moves towards the Biscay ports; if he passes to the west of Atlantis, he can intercept f...

As with the previous earthquake, the French and Chilean governments will offer their assistance. The Chileans will offer to send immediately some Army field hospital units, and some transport companies with trucks (Unimogs) and aircraft (large and small). If any assistance is required for search and rescue, other assistance can be sent as well...

Majority Denied - But a New Coalition Rises Wednesday, June 2, 1948 - The Alliance Républicaine failed to pick up a majority of Parliamentary seats in Sunday's election, gaining only two votes, both in Bretagne. However, the center-left Front Républicaine suffered significant losses in some of its traditional strongholds, and the Parti socialiste français also lost two seats. Surprisingly, the true beneficiary of the election turned out to be the Union pour la Démocratie Française (Union for Fre...

British Empire News 1948

Quoted from "Hood" 16 August The Greek Navy has placed an order for 65 BCAC (Westland) Wyvern Mk.52 fighter-bombers to partially re-equip their carrier-based fighter force. Desiring a modern aircraft but not yet fully wiling to embrace turbojet technology on their small carrier flight decks, the Greeks have ordered a version of the Royal Navy’s FSN.Mk.II powered by a 4,030ehp rated Rolls-Royce RB.39 Clyde I turboprop. The Greek Wyverns will lack the ability to carry a torpedo but will retain fu...

Quoted from "Rooijen10" Earthquake deaths are to be expected with big earthquakes and can happen in many regions of the world. Looking at wiki, a bigger one may probably occur later in the year (though that depends on the player controlling the nation in question). You refer to the Ashgabat Earthquake in October, I presume? Or another one?

Quoted from "BruceDuncan" Oh my. Someone has stirred the pot in Damascus. This can't end well. 8) The result of long-standing trends, ultimately. During the late 1930s, Syria accepted the treaty as they were concerned about the events occurring with perceived Persian and Bharati aggression. These days, those threats have settled down and been forgotten. Stepping out of the defense treaty with France gives Damascus a bit more flexibility in responding to the circumstances that face them. :evil:

A Spectre Rising

Berlin, Englische Kirche zu St. Georg, Saturday, 14 August 1948 Mathis showed up at the rendezvous a half-hour early, curious to scope out the ground before meeting his mysterious contact, eventually hovering across the street at the building of the 'Anglican Hebrew Christian Testimony to Israel'. He'd toyed with the idea of requesting assistance or backup from either another agent of the Deuxième Bureau - or possibly a German policeman - but Mathis was unable to roust any of the former on such ...
